However, you should ask your doctor first on what to expect after and during surgery.
What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplant is a surgical process in which hair follicles are removed from any area of your body, such as legs or face and planted on the bald area. Hair in brows and lashes are also transplanted in this process.
With advancement of technology, follicular clusters of hair are also transplanted and results are permanent. This process of Follicular Hair Transplantation (FUT) is performed in two different ways – follicular unit extraction (FUE) and strip harvesting.
Skin strips having proper hair growth are planted on the bald areas in strip harvesting. On the other side, hair clusters with roots are planted and removed at bald area manually in follicular unit extraction.
These days, surgeons are adopting the process of strip harvesting. It leaves the donor area with a slim scar and promotes recovery in 2 weeks. FUE is a manual and time-consuming process but it leaves no marks behind and gives natural results.
